Just can’t wait to get on the road again.
The life I love is making music with my friends
And I can’t wait to get on the road again.
On the road again
Goin’ places that I’ve never been.
Seein’ things that I may never see again
Like a band of gypsies we go down the highway
We’re the best of friends.
Insisting that the world keep turning our way –
Long skirts for me have been synonymous with a carefree attitude, chilled out summer evenings and a relaxed pace of mind. More popularly known as the Maxi skirts, I like the Indian version of this flowy five metres of fabric. The richness of the colors and its countless hues, varieties in fabrics, hand crafted work in the designs and the twirl that you get when you move – all to die for.
I would say , it turns out to be the most comfortable styling piece in the hot Indian Summers. Bollywood divas have also been flaunting it in lot of movies – think of Preity Zinta in Lakshya , Sonam Kapoor in Delhi 6, Yami Gautam in Vicky Donor, Mallika Sherawat in Pyaar ke Side effects, Kareena Kapoor in Qurbaan . The common element of dressing was long colorful flowy skirts, kohl eyes , junk jewellery and a boho- chic vibe to it.
I admit I am a big fan of this style sense.
I teamed a black cotton top with a tribal folk art inspired floral skirt in bright green colors . The red border added the color contrast element to it. The Tibetan necklace and junk jewellery in the hands with Kolhapuri chappals finished the look. Did I mention, a half pencil of Kohl as well ?? 🙂

Maxi skirts are a big rage even for Spring Summer 2014. While the market is flooded with chiffon and knit fabric version, you could opt for the Indian textiles and rich colors to opt for boho-chic look.
Style tips –
- – Wear this long printed skirts with solid colored tops and vice versa ( If solid colored skirts, then you can opt for either solid colored tops or prints like florals, nautical stripes, checks etc)
- – Style it with silver/ dull gold matte finish jewellery to give it an eclectic vibe. The more , the better. Add color pop ups in hand cuffs, maybe a bandana, colorful Kolhapuris and vibrant jholas.
- – Add a denim jacket/waistcoat or a colorful vest to add an extra style element or maybe throw around a colorful stole.
